Yes, you can remove some fluid in that manner, but Lucas Trans. Fix is not a magic sauce that will just fix all problems. If you have bad hard parts in your transmission using the Lucas stuff may be like putting money in the toilet.

Better solution might be try changing the existing transmission fluid and filter.

Now you beat me Bob. There is no cure-all mechanic in a can . Please don't make it worse with that crap


I really do understand that most of us, myself included, don't have cash laying around for taking you car to the shop. But that same precious cash is wasted with these products.

Thanks for the feedback. Going to run this through it. Drive to work a few days and change filter fluid and the new pan with drain plug. My girls bought all this stuff for my father's day. Maybe by sept i can afford the valve body. I will do work so not worried about shop labor. That helps. All research says its torque converter solenoid 46 bucks. Think i should just buy that and replace when i have pan off for this round?


Actually, Yes. Do that.

Bob Beaman

Do that and leave the goop out of it.
